Very popular restaurant and always busy - great ambience and setting but expected good food. We both had a highly recommended lobster omelette which was overcooked and difficult to swallow with the most unappetising potatoes which we couldn't eat at all. Good menu and fair prices but wouldn't return because of the terrible food.

One of our top two meals in Palm Springs area. Wonderful service and very flavorful meals. Short ribs and crispy whitefish. Price fixe meal is a great bargain

I had been to this restaurant for brunch but not dinner. So this was the first time to try an evening meal. I had salmon and I really liked it. I appreciated that they brought me gluten free bread too. Such a nice setting!

We have had brunch, lunch and dinner. The setting is lovely, the service was good...but all the meals were below average. After the 3rd time we have decided to not try again!

We were there during modernist week and it was very busy everywhere in Palm Springs. The staff at the restaurant were very accommodating in spite of how busy they were. They were attentive, very pleasant and the food was excellent and very good value . We would return there if in town and I will reccommend it to friends who... More

I have to say that our filet mignon with lobster was good....the lobster was a bit overdone, but the beef was perfect. We all ordered the same meal, and the accompaniments were horrid! Don'e even put them in your mouth!! One was a dried up leek...very nasty, and the other a whole baked romano tomato with a hideous glop of... More

Spencer's is my number one "go to" fancy restaurant in the desert. Starting with valet car service, to sitting under the stars and twinkling streaming lights, to the most attentive staff and deliciously-made cuisine! Manhattan cocktail was perfection. Steaks and seafood are prepared perfectly. Make reservations in advance and ask to sit outside. You won't regret it! ps. it was... More

My wife and I ate here for dinner on a Friday night during our recent Palm Springs trip. The restaurant has a very wonderful outdoor patio that has a great romantic ambiance. Service was top notch with great waitstaff and hostess that were very accommodating. Our food was terrific. I had the short ribs and my wife had chicken which... More

Beautiful outdoor seating with full shade from trees and umbrellas. Service was excellent. I had a spinach frittata which was pretty bland even with some salsa and no toast or extras. My partner had chorizo and egg tacos which were very tasty.
